GUWAHATI, Jan 28 � Frustrated with repeated appeals to improve civic infrastructure being ignored by the authorities concerned, the Tarun Nagar Unnayan Samity has written to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh seeking redressal of serious problems affecting local inhabitants.
The Samity revealed that after the communication, a letter was received from the office of All India Congress Committee from the office of Dr M Veerappa Moily, senior Congress leader.
In a statement released to the media, the Samity informed that even after an order was issued from the office of the Chief Minister, no action was taken on construction of bylane number six, which has been creating great inconvenience to the public.
With no reprieve in sight, the Samity has written to the Commissioner and Secretary, Guwahati Development Department, Assam stating that if no immediate action is taken within a fortnight, local residents would go in for mass protest action.
It is worth mentioning that although located in the heart of the city, more than 1,000 householders of the Tarun Nagar area have been held hostage by frequent flooding during the rainy season.
This, according to residents, has also contributed to unhygienic living conditions in which children have immensely suffered.
